Well i didn’t get as much done this weekend as I hoped!
Water well went out, had to go to Texas and bad storms!
Anyway a friend of mine brought me some leftover fire wood
last week and I really didn’t much attention to what I was holding
till I made the first cut on the miter saw and realized this was dark
walnut. I called him and said hey do you still want to get rid of all
those limbs?! He said yes I will bring them to you! So now I have a
huge pile of dark walnut to trip over in my dinky shop but it worth it.
These are walnut and cedar
The hinges I used toothpicks and for handles the button head plugs
I had left over from the coffee table I made my wife!
I have enuf wood stored away to keep me busy for a long time!
I have about twenty boxes laid out anywhere from limbs to scraps
glued together for band saw boxes!
These boxes are fun and addictive to make!
I band saw the bark off then sand them
Then sand a flat bottom and cut the ends
off on a miter saw then band saw out the
middle drill holes for the plug and and tothpicks
glue it all back together and a couple coats of
boiled linseed oil and whaa la a box…
also working on inlay ideas in the lids and sides…
Still in the design trial and error phase!
